Budget 2023, dubbed the ‘cost of living’ budget, will be presented on Tuesday, 27 September

This Budget is expected to include a tax package of just over €1 billion focusing on measures to tackle inflation and the increasing cost of living. It will also focus on the longer-term challenges around housing, public health services, and the climate crisis.

Shannon Chamber, in conjunction with Grant Thornton, will host an evening in The Radisson Blu Hotel in Limerick on 27 September, commencing at 5.30pm. A panel of experts from Grant Thornton will review the impact the Budget measures will have on business and also address the wider economic impact of Budget 2023.

Given that sustainability has evolved from an environmentally focused discipline to a key driver of business strategy, this evening will also feature a panel discussion, facilitated by sustainability professional Barry Gavin. The panel, listed below, will share insights on their sustainability journeys and experiences in their businesses:

  • David Keating, Director at Ei Electronics
  • Ed Roycroft, Technical Director at Chemifloc Ltd.
  • Niamh Harte, Sales and Marketing Manager, Tekelek Group

We hope you can join us for what promises to be an informative session.
